The eulogies have been delivered,
the set disassembled and the echo of
Jon Stewart s parting "b-s-is-every-
where" monologue is fading.
What now? After 16 years as Amer-
ica s leading comedy/political TV
satirist, Stewart leaves no clear suc-
cessor even as America enters a pres-
idential election season overflowing
with satirical promise.
Stewart was celebrated partly as the
progressive voice to counter the partisan
shrillness of Fox News during an era
of exaggerated political division, and
also in part as a comedian prepared to
skewer politicians of all leanings,
celebrities, the media and whoever else
was deserving of news-parody.
Blatant mendacity, Stewart warned
during his farewell broadcast, has
become ubiquitous. He urged viewers
to resist misinformation. "Whenever
something s been titled Freedom Family
Fairness Health America, take a good
long sniff," he said.
But who will take on the mantle?
Stephen Colbert, the other well-known
satirist of the era, appears to have abdi-
cated from satire and will now host the
mainstream, broadly comedic The
Tonight Show; John Oliver, Stewart s
understudy at The Daily Show, broad-
casts just one night a week and is there-
fore not positioned for daily political
commentary. Jimmy Fallon, the current
king of late-night TV, is not strictly a
political animal and places his emphasis
on comedy. If politicians come on his
show, as Jeb Bush did in June after
announcing his candidacy, it s often to
parody the news.
"There doesn t appear to be any heir
to fill the vacuum---unless Trevor Noah
can pull it off," says one network exec-
utive. "If he can t, there s no one." But
Noah, a South African and Stewart s
successor at The Daily Show, is a relative
newcomer to US TV. He s already said
he ll move away from Stewart s obses-
sion with Fox News.
Sophia McClennen, a professor at
Penn State University and essayist on
the role of satire in the political dis-
course, predicts that, without the insider
Colbert and Stewart were able to proj-
ect, any effort by Noah to emulate their
satirical commentary is liable to come
off as uncaring or mocking. "I m afraid
we re going to lose the much-needed
voice to say, What s going on with
Donald Trump? I m not sure how
funny that s going to be coming from
someone from another country. Satire
doesn t work coming from an outsider,
so how s he going to make fun of our
Part of the answer may be that polit-
ical satire is already on the move. Just
as Garry Trudeau s Doonesbury was
the insiders satire of the Reagan era,
Colbert and Stewart came to represent
the excesses of the Bush era and its
aftermath, so the tail end of the Obama
administration and its successor may
require a new focus and lighter touch
that reflects a changing political land-
scape and the way in which Americans
consume media information.
Jon Stewart has gone,
but does anyone have his edge?
